I love this truck.  I had a lifted 79 F150 (only one of three Fords I ever owned, the other two being a Galaxie 500 and my wife's Taurus) with 44s and a hell of a disposition.  It was also a 460 4 speed.  Had to bend the fuck out of the shifter to manage the lift and you had to push it into 1st to keep from slamming your knuckles into the dash.  I would love to own that truck.
Thanks, I love it too. Just replaced a power steering hose about twenty minutes ago. The engine actually came out of a 79 :)
and the shifter used to be about 4 inches from the ceiling. In fourth gear you could just rest your elbow on the bench seat back rest. I had to cut it down for city driving, my right hand is still visible above the dash most of the time. 

I bought it from my friend Zach who has had more crew cab fords than anyone I know, most of them 460's. The one that started it all was built like a truck that you might see on the cover of Four Wheeler back in 1986. Triple shocks up front, 12" of lift, 39.5 x 19.5 Mickey Thomson Bajas, etc.

One drunken night in the trailer park about 13 years ago a kid with a 2001 Dodge 2500 Cummins decided to let his mouth write a check his truck couldn't cash, and before he knew it his 'lightweight' little dodge diesel extended cab was being pulled in circles on pavement, backwards. For a long time. He was actually crying when he got out of the truck.

Nice truck Dohc...I would definitely prefer the crew over my extended. Even with the seats forward it's tough for an adult to get back there and the bench seat back there is worthless...I use the space for tools, lunch box and other crap.

Had a 2000 Chevy crew 4x4 but the 350 was way to small for hauling and going up into the mountains. When GM got bailed out I ditched it and switched to Fords...bought the F250 and a E150.

F250 needs paint and have narrowed it down to silver or white, now I can refer to yours as the white example.

Got some new shoes on this old bird, thanks to Redbird.  Nothing like the classic look of American Racing 5 star torq thrust mags...

Never seen this thread I don't think, but your truck looks killer with those hoops.

And a shout out to my 98 s10 long bed for getting me and my junk from Ohio to barber and back again.

After lots of hunting this is the beast that seemed to fit bill for my needs.  The thing has really impressed me with it's capabilities, comfort, and power.  5.7L, 6-speed auto, 2X4.

I had an '08 as a company truck for a few years. Great vehicle. The iForce V8 is a beast.

You should like this much better than the Ford I am sure, FIL has one and they are great, well built trucks.
